move forward? this raises the bar for romney and for obama. so i think our next debate is going to be a little more livelier, jon. jon: cory, even big obama supporters like bill maher, bill maher tweeted out during the debate that it looks like president obama doesn't even realize he is showing up here for a job interview. >> well, jon, there is no question about it that mitt romney did a good job of exceeding dramatically low expectations. definitely won the expectations game, right. jon: if he won the debate? that is more than exceeding low expectations, isn't it? >> i think so. >> but here's the point, the point is at end of the day debates about specifics. this was very substantive debate last night. even the president at the end thought it was a very good conversation but i think his strongest point throughout the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for

on all of these stories throughout the next three hours. president obama heading to las vegas tomorrow for a campaign rally. the president then expected to hunker down in henderson, nevada, to prepare for that first presidential debate. nbc news white house correspondent, mike viqueira, joining me live. now, mike, the president again, no public appearances today. earlier this week, he was at the united nations. he's been hitting the campaign trail hard. he's been dealing with the fallout from the libya attacks. is he finding enough time to even practice for the debates? >> well, you know, craig, to the extent that the command of the issues will make a difference in these debates, you can say he's getting a lot of on the job training, certainly. but to argue your premise a little bit, the president, as far as we know, is, in fact, practicing for those debates. just yesterday, he spent two hours south of the capital, about a mile from here, the democratic national committee headquarters, where we are told, on deep background, that he was, in fact, practicing on those debates. of course,
in the next two debates. and i think team obama is probably looking at that right now and saying okay, we have to step into this debate. we can't stand back and i would differ with you, rachel about the moderator point in this debate. i actually like this kind of debate because the moderator is not a factor. he leaves it up to the debaters to make it a debate. mitt romney's team knew that and mitt romney came into this debate determined to make it a debate. no one brought up green jobs. the moderator didn't bring up green jobs. mitt romney did to use it as a tool against the president. the president has to realize that his side and he is under the same obligation to drive the debate from his side himself. the moderator is not going to drive this debate. >> that's exactly right. that's sort of the point that i was trying to make about how the different approaches of romney and obama played very differently with this sort of a format and that romney just rolled over the format and made it about everything he wanted it to be. everything on domestic policy on which he is the weakest was just avoid
established by this point why this was such a disastrous debate for obama. i'll play a quick clip here, and this is a jumping-off point to talk about what he needs to do in the next debates to avoid a repeat of this. let's play a clip of an opening romney gave him that he completely missed. >> i'm not looking to cut massive taxes and reduce the revenues going to the government. my number one principle is there's no tax cut that adds to the deficit. i want to underline that. virtually everything you said about my tax plan is inaccurate. so if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. i'm not looking for 5i trillion tax cut. i won't put in a place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not my plan. >> that's three different moments during this debate when mitt romney noticed the bump in the set for obama. what he's saying there is he's arguing against math. the idea that you can cut faxes 20%, can you tell taxes for everybody and it's deficit neutral and faye for it by closing unspecified loop

the next debate in new york for team obama. and of course, it all happened right here in battleground, colorado. it's a state that's been trending quickly from red to purple in recent years. will the first debate keep it from going blue again for the president and going back to red? good morning again from the university of denver. thursday, october 4th. 2012. this is "daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. a big hour ahead, including daily reaction from orrin hatch, governor martin o'malley and many more. let's get to the first read of the morning. in what may be the most substantive debate in the era of televised presidential debates. mitt romney performed as if his campaign depended on it, while a surprisingly subdued president obama allowed his challenger to dictate the terms of the debate. from the start, romney displayed confidence and demanding the presence on stage. he oned up the president on his own wedding anniversary shoutout. >> i want to wish you, sweetie, happy anniversary. >> congratligss on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine, here w
next year. >>> could there be trouble in par are dice for president obama and his one-time buddy, ben affleck. he had high hopes for president obama in 2008. but now affleck admits his feeling for the president are complicated. the actor blamed the president's record for his change of heart. >> brian: he wants him to be more liberal. so does matt damon. that's why he's disappointed. there you go. 12 minutes after the hour. next up, a u.s. border patrol agent shot and killed in the line of duty. so is the federal government failing to give our agents proper protection? we'll report. you decide. >> steve: and did you know having the government in your home for dinner? why are they telling you what to eat in your own house? the food police make a stop at your place. details ahead [ man ] ring ring... progresso this reduced sodium soup says it mahelp lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just he to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso
-debate campaigning as he arrives. every day counts. wolf? >> president obama is spending the next couple of days in henderson, nevada, gearing up for wednesday's debate. our white house correspondent dan lothian is over at the white house. he getting new information. what's the latest on his xaeb preparation, dan? >> reporter: campaign official telling me that the president began those practices last might after arriving in defense nevada and continued these rehearsals this morning in nevada as well. taking only a break this afternoon. one of the things that they are really working on is trying to get the president to be more concise and in his answers. you know, sometime it is president can be long winded and the campaign has admitted this and it is not the most effective way to deliver your message. so they are trying to get the president to answer these questions with very few words. he has a small team of adviser around him including david axelrod, former white house communications director anita dunn. and also brian, one of the president's economic adviser. they are not talking about some o
it for the next four. and most importantly, talked about his own policies and set the record straight on some of the misleading ads that the obama campaign has put out about his tax plan, budget plan, health care plan, so on. he did exactly what he had to do for undecided voters, really pleased with his performance. >> what about the line from the president that mitt romney has not offered enough specifics? and if the specifics were so great, he would be revealing them? do you think the governor has to start revealing specifics, at least to the next debate? >> criticizing for knowing too many specifics, including sometimes by president obama and his campaign, with his 56-point plan. he has the plan boiled down to a plan thattic has a lot of sense. he is offering a way forward. the tax plan alone will gain 7 million jobs, it's pro-growth and this is analysis looked at by economists right, left, and center over the years, you need to reform the tax code to grow the economy. president obama has had four years to do it, hasn't done it. and mitt romney will do it day one. >> senator, i think you m
to the obama campaign's own web video to see the president's next line of attack. >> with the language mitt romney uses, the verdict is false. >> reporter: democrats are already labeling some of romney's statements like this one on health care outright lies. >> pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> well, actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. >> reporter: look to romney to return fire at the next debate with a few new zingers like the one he launched at the president. >> mr. president, you're entitled as president to your own airplane and your own house, but not your own facts. >> reporter: portman told cnn with two debates to go, his work is not finished yet. wolf. >> jim acosta reporting for us. thank you. we're standing by to hear from the president of the united states. he's in madison, wisconsin, over at the university there right now getting ready to speak. this is video from him earlier in the day. that's live pictures from madison, wisconsin. you see the stage. he should be arriving there momentarily. we're going to hear what he has to say. he's coming o
never proposed any such thing. >> you're expecting team obama to go hard tomorrow. >> i think team obama knows what happened tonight. i don't think -- but i also think that this is the way this campaign works out. what happened tonight will play out clearly through the weekend to the next debate. so we should be a little -- little temperament in terms -- >> what do you think -- >> let us enjoy a good night. >> one of the things i thought was really interesting about the debate, including, of course, the fact that romney won it and everybody knows it, including obama's campaign energies, romney seemed like he understood the issues better than obama did. it was striking to me when romney said, for example, well, yes, president obama, i agree with training, but there are 47 different programs and 8 agencies and that cost as a lot of money and we need to consolidate, and by the way, your support of green energy is costing $90 billion. he did a masterful job of showing he knows the issues. >> let's see what viewers thought, next. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speec
interesting story lines today and for the next two weeks is how does the obama campaign react to what happened last night in. >> oh, absolutely. >> we're going to find out. because maybe we're missing something. i can't figure it out. >> listen, i think they'll even admit, mika, that mitt romney had a great night, but they're going to go in. we're talking style here. >> i know. >> because that's what moves debates. they're going to pick apart everything mitt romney said. we're going to see it on 30-second ads. >> and all their inconsistencies. a lot of them. >> there's a lot to pick at now because there's much more specificity on the table, and some of the things romney said last night are vulnerable to attack in new ways, new and effective ways for the president. >> too bad he wasn't attacked last night. joe klein, thank you very much. >> thank you, joe. >>> ahead, chuck todd will join us from the debate site in denver. coming up, senior adviser to the obama campaign, david axelrod. and in a few minutes, senior adviser to the romney campaign, ed gillespie. keep it right here on "morning joe."
. read about it the next day. >> bill: the debate last night did get off to -- this was the only moment of unity and harmony in the entire debate. it was the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. president obama would have been in the doghouse if he did not start the debate by recognizing first lady michelle obama in the front row. >> obama: i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary and let you know a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. >> bill: maybe even 50 million people. which prompted mitt romney to get off his first zinger of the night. >> romney: congratulations to you, mr. president on your anniversary. i'm sure this was the most romantic place you could imagine here with me. congratulations. >> bill: there you go. >> a rare moment of real, genuine humor from romney bot. >> bill: it was downhill from there. we're going to have a lot of help getting through the debate. all of you, of course, again your calls at 1-866-55-press. diana, congresswoman from colorado wi
that's important. so i think that any obama supporter who really loves the president is a little worried that maybe sometimes he may speak longer than the evening news and the morning news the next day is able to cover in full. >> as someone who's moderated four debates with him can testify to that. congressman, to you, what's the biggest weakness governor romney has. i've moderated four debates with him as well. >> there's so much material to attack the president on -- >> no. not the president. romney's biggest weakness. >> well, i think part of the challenge is how do you succinctly get to that and at the same time when you only have 90 seconds or 120 seconds to answer a question then also be able to share your vision and your compassion to the voters that are watching at home. to be able to contrast the president's record and his vision, share with that in a compassionate way, that's challenging to do in 120 seconds. >> here's a big challenge that the president has, bill. look at this. likely voters we asked who will win the presidential debate? 56% said the president. 32% sai
points they would do if they became president in the next four years. >> and on that point then, three specific points that you think obama's going to give. >> lower the corporate rate, do tax reform and rebuild every school that's over over 50 years. >> how's that any different than what romney would tell you? >> it's not. >> is it shocking to you? >> in four years, he's had one of the -- he's had the senate on his side. and what can he say he's done? if you want to ask the question that ronald reagan asked in 1980 is are you better off today than you were four years ago. is there less unemployment than there was four years ago? the answer for at least 23 million americans is no. >> ask the 800,000 people a month that are losing their jobs, the answer is yes. >> that they're better off now than they were four years ago? >> the unemployment rate is above where it was. ronald reagan's highest unemployment was 10.1%. when he ran for re-election was 7.1%. >> what was it when he started? >> what? >> what was the unemployment rate when obama started? 7.9. it's at 8.1. >> we call that the bu
in colora. i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama, the democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, the republican. nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential, are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15-minute segments with two-minute answers for the first question, then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions have a the internet and other means, but i made the final selections, and for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the segments, as i announced in advance, will be three on the economy and e each on health care, the role of government, and governing with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics, and choices. both candidates will also have two-minute closing statements. the audience her
they call the 3 ds. dissatisfied, disappointed and disenchanted obama voters. it's about convincing them that over the next four years, you will do a better job to improve their lives. what they're looking for is those, that narrower and narrower slice of swing voters. i mean, he's got a double job to do. >> he had a convention speech and he wasn't able to do it. >> that's why he's got to do it tonight. so but he's got a double job. he's got to talk to those swing voters who are disaffected about president obama, but then make sure his base turns out and he's got to get the base enthusiastic. now, what the base wants and those swing voters want maybe two different things. >> but how many people are still undecided? >> this many. >> but there are still people who are persuadable. >> have debates really persuaded them. >> john kerry, going into that first debate, was seven points behind. after that first debate, he was only two points behind. now, we know he ended up losing because president bush came back and did a better job in the second debate. but it did narrow the gap for john kerry.
whether president obama gets more aggressive on that score as these debates go forward. next one is vp debate in kentucky next week. thank you guys both so much. >> thank you. >> thanks, megyn. megyn: a new twist own an ugly legal battle. a major television network facing a lawsuit from george zimmerman the way it editing the 911 call he made on the night that he shot 17-year-old trayvon martin. we will play you the he had debted -- edited tape and debate the lawsuit's chances in "kelly's court". >>> come nell oliver north reporting from afghanistan reminding us on the people that make the ultimate sacrifice on those who defend our freedom. >> this is one who got the a tacked earlier this morning. we'll find out exactly what happened. one of our secure villains. we're getting out talking to the people -- villages. to see what they have to say. we're here for the people. ve la. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash
of the president but also tell the story about what he wants to do in the next four years. he has to get a lot done in the first half an hour because it's a cliche, but the first impression does count. >> and how -- the second thing is how hard will president obama come out swinging? >> i think president obama's entire campaign going back tokts of last year, andrea, against governor romney has been really tough, really aggressive and i think you're going to see that once again tonight. he will say mitt, you ssupport same policies that got us into this mess, he will go after the tax cuts for the rich, wall street regulations, we know what he's going to say and no doubt he's going to say it off the bat. >> the third thing the magic 47%, how high that's going to play and whether or not mitt romney can sneak in benghazi and the foreign policy attack lines in a domestic debate? >> the most telling tv ad in the last two weeks has been the obama decision to put the romney comments about the 47% by itself in a tv ad. that tells me that they're pulling and their polling and focus groups were devastating whe
challenge is not so much to make a case against president obama over the last four years. there's no question voters are ambivalent about the performance. he's got to make a case that he can make the next four years better. we have a poll out, national journal poll. are you better off? are you worse off? or about the same as four years ago. among the about the same folks, people who don't say they see any improvement over obama the president is still leading by over 20 points. that is what romney has to change. >> i want to share something "the new york times" says. the romney team has been included the debates are about moments and have equipped him with a dear riis of zingers he has memorized and been practicing on aides since august. we've got some here that we want to share. >> there you go again. i want you to know that also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no j
years have been run by, the obama-biden ticket. that is why the vice president clarified at his next campaign stop he was in saying, meant to say that the middle class was buried the previous eight years by the bush-cheney economic policies. he believes that the romney-ryan ticket would double down on the policies, a point the president wants to make tonight but a point the vice president maybe didn't make so clearly yesterday. jenna: we all have our time lines out about when that took place, i guess, i'd. a rot lot of romney surrogates talked about the president in recent days. you sat down with one of them. regardless prepared anything biden tries to correct to use his own words. how so? >> i sat down with marco rubio, florida senator, one of the most prominent hispanic politicians in america. that is significant in nevada because hispanic population could be pivotal. the hispanic population very important here in colorado, another important state that both sides desperately want. i think what senator rubio was trying to say in this sit down he thinks the message from mitt romney t
for a peace deal with the taliban. what is next for us inside the war-torn country? jennifer griffin is here to break down the details. plus, on the eve of the first presidential debate both president obama and governor mitt romney are hard at work on their final preps. we'll have an update from the campaign trail next. gregg: there are plans to hold peace talk with the taliban and they've now collapsed, this as nato commander's try to find a new way to boost stability in the region as forces begin to head home. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has the details from the pentagon. how seriously did the u.s. military take these peace talks with the taliban. >> not very. this was essentially a state-department-led idea from with some backing from the white house and the president's national security advisers over at the white house when richard holbrooke was still alive as ambassador and envoy to pakistan he backed the idea because many military commander's believed you could not shoot yourself out of this war, out of the war in afghanistan. the pentagon also never believed that
